education company, to bring in its classrooms - DigiClass - an ICT-based solution
that combines state-of-the-art hardware with syllabus-compliant, multimedia-based
interactive content. DigiClass solution empowers teachers to transform traditional
blackboard-and-chalk classrooms into interactive sessions. The multimedia content

something familiar, students can better understand and retain new information.
